Students who complete prerequisite courses at Oregon Tech will be given additional consideration in the OHSU application process. Once accepted to OHSU, students can finish the BSN degree right here in Klamath Falls on the Oregon Tech campus.
The Bachelor of Science with a major in nursing degree prepares graduates to practice in a variety of settings and to care for individuals, families and populations across the lifespan. Students achieve competencies that address the rapidly changing health care needs of Oregon’s aging and ethnically diverse populations. The curriculum has been thoughtfully and specifically designed to allow students to gain the skills and requirements necessary for nursing practice today.
This is a three-year program that is designed for students to complete the 45-credits of prerequisite courses at any regionally accredited college or university (like EOU, Oregon Tech, SOU or WOU) and then join OHSU for the nursing coursework. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) after successful completion of the program.
Each campus provides state of the art technology, outstanding nursing faculty and multiple clinical opportunities as well as unique campus climate and learning environments. Applicants apply once to OHSU and designate the campus of their choice as part of their application process. Applicants can learn more about each campus by visiting OHSU’s website.
